BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- All three members of North Dakota's congressional delegation say they support legislation to provide aid to cash-strapped Ukraine and sanction Russia for its annexation of Crimea.
The House and Senate passed different bills on Thursday, and lawmakers hope to soon send a single bill to the White House for President Barack Obama's signature.
Sens. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp and Rep. Kevin Cramer all voted for the measures. They say it is important to counter Russia's aggression and support Ukraine, a country with which North Dakota has strong trade relations. North Dakota exports to Ukraine last year totaled $22 million.
